Sounds suspiciously like when I was trying to configure an 8-bit soundcard
last year (didn't realise at the time that it was 8-bit), the 8-bit
sounds files played ok and the 16-bit ones were garbled. Try it with an
8-bit sound file and a 16-bit one ('file aufile.au' should tell you which
it is, sox will convert from one to the other). Then hmm, I dunno, I have
an sb16 and I don't load the es1371 module at all, the ones I load are
Module Size Used by
sb 31416 0
uart401 5588 0 [sb]
sound 54368 0 [sb uart401]
soundcore 2088 6 [sb sound]
You're not using a Dell Optiplex or one of those are you? This is what
I'm using and it has an on-board 8-bit sound chip, I think I had to
disable it in the BIOS or remove kernel support for it, so that it
didn't get initialised on startup.
